Community Profile: The growing community of Williams Lake is located amidst sparkling lakes and rolling ranchland in the heart of the Cariboo Chilcotin Region of British Columbia. As the largest city in the area, it serves as a business, industrial and service hub for outlying communities and provides employment opportunities in the forestry, mining, agriculture and tourism sectors. Home to the famous Williams Lake Stampede, this former “cowtown” has grown into a vibrant city that offers its residents a comfortable blend of urban living and western charm. Horseback riding, mountain biking, river rafting, cross country skiing, fishing and camping are popular recreational pursuits in the area.
